A place that has all-in-one. Can see the Old Belize museum, eat at the restaurant, and or enjoy the lovely man-made beach. We had great time!

Starting with the Mayas, up to the early 1900, you get a good feel for the history of Belize. The captions are very informative and easy to read. It can be reached easily with the local bus for about $1. No need to take a cab as the bus stops upon request.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and scenery, but loved all the old artifacts even more. So much history, activity and food in one place. Nice family setting.

Old Belize is a combination of a few things the family of travelers might be looking for. There is a little museum with sections of different historical times in the young independent country. You can spend there no more than 15 min (without a talkative guide). At the exit you can buy local arts and crafts. Next to the shop... More

I had gone with my father-in-law and he was pretty impressed since his father actually had pictures of the time period the museum portrays and he said it looks identical. We decided to go in without a tour guide and do our own... More

Old Belize is worth the trip. Food is good. Beach was fine. The walk through the "cultural" part was also educational and entertaining. Time well wasted.!!
